Question KDE looses file associations


my KDE (3.2) is loosing it's file associations. Everytime I set Firebird as my default browser, it's lost some time later.

My guess is that msec or some other cron triggered program resets the file that stores the associations. But I don't know, as I don't know where the file associations are stored.

Can anyone tell me where the file associations are stored? (Or is this a bug, and anyone knows the solution...?)

Thanks in advance
